I'm sorry to hear about your bad day. I thought you needed a big hug to cheer you up, so here it is (((HUG))). It seems as if your bf is in denial and just wants to hide from all this. And that he says he's scared... He's the one person you're supposed to trust and count on whenever you need a shoulder to cry on or just a hand to hold when times get rough.
Before I was diagnosed, I felt tired a lot, got headaches many times, took naps during the day, my hands tend to get hot and swell, and I felt very sensitive to the sun, and I get an occasional bodyache here and there. I didnt know why. My bf was starting to think that I'm making all this up, that I was complaining of a different ache every time. Gosh, I know he didnt tell me this but, he probably thought I was a hypochondriac. :roll: Then I got really sick, stayed home in bed for almost a month, with high fevers, severe bodyaches. Didnt know why I was sick. :cry: After numerous tests, and seeing so many doctors, I discovered what was causing all this. LUPUS. I wanted my bf to understand this disease and to understand what was happening to me and why, so I brought him to all my doctors' visits. We were both educated about the disease. Now he understands me. He's been very supportive and understanding. I know I can tell him everything, but there are times when I just keep my complaints of aches and pains to myself. Its always the same boring story. But I'm blessed to have him whenever I need cheering up or just a hug. Maybe you should try that... have your bf go with you to your doctor appointments, so he can understand the disease. So he can understand you better...
Sorry for such a long post. Hope I cheered you up a little. :rainbowafro: Whenever you need to talk, you know where to find me. Have a great day!
